Open to OPA members and guests, this workshop will challenge those who attend to move out of their comfort zones and explore representational imagery beyond mere copying what is before them. Solid Instruction without academic conformity, this workshop is offered to artists hungry for moving their art forward. Charles teaches with the individual artist in mind. Utilizing the costumed model, from composition to sculptural painting, with an eye towards artistic taste and aesthetic, the goal is to look beyond, to see, to think in a sensitive way. And in doing, begin to gain a deeper understanding of the rich medium of oil painting.
Informative and passionate, Charles approaches art instruction in a logical and progressive manner by addressing visual principles and the material power of technique in order to transcend them so that the painter may develop and fulfill their own artist vision.
